We know what we’re up against in 2012. Unemployment, unfair trade laws, and obstruction in Washington are just a few of the challenges we’re now facing.
That’s why it is more important than ever that we continue our fight for the rights and prosperity of workers in Massachusetts and across the country.
For over 100 years, the labor movement has been standing up for working families. It is crucial that we elect leaders who will stand with us and put principles before politics.
Without the political efforts of unions, Massachusetts workers would not benefit from a minimum wage, unemployment insurance, overtime pay, or worker’s compensation. Unions have played key roles in the civil rights movement, have brought safety and dignity to countless workplaces, and have fought to end discrimination based on gender, race, and ethnicity.
In 2012, many politicians, corporations, and special interests are working to undermine these advances at the expense of workers and our families.
The United Steelworkers needs your help to elect officials who will hear our concerns, protect our future, and choose America’s workers over Wall Street.
Together, we’ll make sure that workers win in 2012.
